daily abc news/"washington post" polls. tonight, the poll gives mitt romney a one-point edge. so, we asked abc's david muir to tell us his strategy for the final stretch. >> reporter: mitt romney bolting through the battlegrounds. today, on the plane, it was the candidate taking pictures. romney capturing images of his staff sneaking a nap as romney races to the finish. in just the last 24 hours, virginia -- >> virginia, we're going to win on november 6th, i'll tell you that. >> reporter: wisconsin. >> god bless the people of wisconsin. thank you. >> reporter: and tonight, ohio. >> wow, it's good to be back. >> reporter: romney supporters with their own version of that obama rallying cry of "four more years." >> four more days! >> you got that right. >> reporter: and today, romney's closing argument, meant to appeal to the moderate voters, the sliver in the middle that might still be persuadable. promising to work the other party, with this attack aimed at the president. >> he promised he'd have a post-partisan presidency. but it's been the most partisan i've seen, with bitterness an
. >> that's right. we are on i-four. and so many republican votes and romney is concentrating. and polls show romney has an edge and the romney republican side of things things they are fairly safe here. earlier in kissimee mr. romney pointed out he will not go to virginia where he had had three events scheduled for tomorrow. the evening event was postponed last night and other two were cancel would. it is a critical state. but because of hurricane sandy, no virginia events for romney. this is how he let the crowd go in florida where it is not even raining now. >> i was looking forward to ande hurricane is headed up there and i spoke with governor mcdonald and we talked about that. he said you know, first responders really need to focus on the preparation for the storm. we'll go tho to ohio instead. cope the folk necessary virginia and new jersey and new york and on the coast in your minds and you know how tough the hurricanes can be and our hearts go out to them. interesting that they are applauding to go to ohio. the buck eye state will be pivotal. and early voting began in florida. it
and governor romney is dead even. latest fox news poll of likely voters showing president obama and governor romney are tied at 46%. today the battleground states becoming a battlefield. >> president obama has seen a once steady lead in michigan decline two points. michigan is in toss-up status. the poll is from the detroit news. it finds obama leading romney 47-45%. that is the second poll in the week that has shown a tight race in michigan. >> it's not too late to turn this around. we can save medicare and social security. we can cut spending to get this budget balanced and pay off this debt. we can get people out of poverty and back to the middle-class. we can get america back on the right track and give our kids a debt free future. >> so ask yourself, who do you trust to be straight with you, to level with you. who do you trust to stand up for the middle-class and measuring? ladies and gentlemen, we are not. these guys, we are not in decline. they are in denial. >> you got fundamentals in this race. one of the fundamentals is the economy is horrible. you have the tea party that arisen si
a president who actually understands job creation. >> our cnn orc poll shows obama at 50 and romney at 48. we begin with one of the hardest hit areas from hurricane sandy, staten island where the death toll continues to rise. with me now is the assemblywoman of new york nicole malliotakis and another resident of staten island, anthony, who rescued his brother from the storm. welcome to you both. >> thank you very much. >> let me start with you, if i may, assemblywoman. this is what the staten island president james molinaro said about the red cross response. he said it's an absolute disgrace. he said he was so infuriated and outraged by the lack of help that you've been receiving. do you endorse what he said? >> well, i think it was a sentiment of frustration this morning because we hadn't had seen a real response here in staten island but we had our senators out here today and i can say that the red cross is on the grounds right now. we have them at certain locations. giving food, giving water. and also our community has been out there collecting donated goods and distributing them out in th
energized and they saw of the bomb in the polls. it remains neck-and-neck in the state. a state mitt romney very much wants to change from blue for barack obama back to read with the win for the republicans. it will be three other names under the virginia ballot. he served in virginia state senate as a member of congress between 1997 and 2009. carey johnson was the republican governor of new mexico. a representative of the green party. he she is a position focused on the environment. she was arrested for taking supplies and food for activists in texas. this could make a difference in the tight race. >> another big competition on the ballot is the senate race between tim kaine and george allen. the numbers show the lead is shrinking. the latest poll shows 50% and allen at 46. 4% are undecided. allen has gained since the beginning of october. they know d.c. and virginia and both are focused on the economy. >> the one thing to do is not raise taxes. that would only cause more job losses. >> that -- i want to make sure the sacrifice is shared. >> in the final days of campaigning, both are leani
romney ahead by 0.5 points, and in north carolina, the polling average has mr. romney ahead by 3.8 points. so that's the 7:00 hour. and then in the 8:00 hour, polls will be closing in these 18 states. of these states, again, there will be three that we're going to be watching most closely. florida, pennsylvania, and new hampshire. the "real clear politics" polling average right now in florida has romney ahead. in pennsylvania the polling average says it is president obama who's ahead by 4.6 points. in new hampshire, again, president obama ahead with a 1.3 lead. that's the 8:00 hour. at 9:00, we'll have polls closed in all those places, and the blinking states here will be the ones that are closing. 14 states mostly in the midwest and the south. of the -- southwest, excuse me. of these 14 states, the states everybody's going to be watching are three. colorado, michigan, and wisconsin. here's what it looks like right now in those states. polling average in the state of colorado, it's very close. president obama ahead by less than a point. in michigan, it's president obama ahead by three poi
mitt romney, because romney was on, he was getting the momentum. he had the gallup poll increasing in his favor and still is. what this did, what the storm did is put evening on hold. froze everything in place. he gets the bigger momentum. importantly, the female vote. the women vote was going, he closed that gap completely. now there is a freeze. bam become can't go -- obama can't go negative and romney can't go negative. if president obama starts showing up at these various places too often, people will say he is pandering. political pandering because these are the state issues. not federal issues. sign the check. that is the only thing. >> bob: brought in by the governors to look at these. >> greg: i heard when he takes the podium later today he will blame the hurricane on the movie "twister" and blame the flooding on "water world" and the fire on "back draft." when he finds throughout is no electricity, he will blame it on "wall-e." >> bob: who does he blame the video on? >> greg: we don't know. who pushed the video. >> bob: are you going to volunteer anyplace? setting up -- >>
at -- by the way rude, did you know i just saw this over the weekend. the cbs poll that showed romney winning by a wide margin in the first poll. did you know that obama in the same poll won the third poll by an even larger margin. but you make a good point. as to how it was covered. with obama, it was covered like a disaster of epic proportions never before seen in politics. and it was not. you know. yes, he was not on his game. anybody can say that. this is -- as you said, you're describing romney in the third debate. he either agreed completely or threw out a word or two that looked like he looked things up on his smart phone. romney's sole plan seems to be he'll be there and not obama. no doubt america will seem stronger with a man named willard in charge. somebody did the graphic but everything he said but i'm white. >> yeah. that's pretty much it. and you know, i just want to go up to people that are thinking of voting for romney and going what if obama said i have a plan to fix the economy but i'm not going to tell
obama and governor mitt romney in a dead heat, with five days to go before americans get to the polls. your voice, your vote. and abc's jake tapper has more. >> reporter: hurricane sandy has forced the president to cancel his appearance at seven campaign events. but he may have gotten something more valuable. >> you're going to be okay. everybody's safe, right? >> reporter: the opportunity to lead and be seen leading. today with new jersey's republican governor chris christie a shelter in brigantine, new jersey. >> hang in there. >> thank you. >> reporter: theirs was a most public display of bipartisan ship today, a trait many undecided voters process to love, one sorely lacking in washington, d.c. >> he has worked incredibly closely with me and i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern. >> governor christie, throughout this process, has been responsive, he has put his heart and soul into making sure that the people of new jersey bounce back. even stronger than before. >> reporter: the president seems confident. his campaign manager said they have the math, romney's
of the economy. if you're a romney voter or you're leaning towards romney in the polls probably have the opposite view. that's where we're going to see in the exit polls come november 6th. >> all right. thank you very much. we appreciate it. taking the audience to breaking news. new video, president obama walking off the helicopter after the aerial tour of new jersey with governor chris christie right there who's certainly been praising the president's response to the storm. we'll hear from the two of them likely within the hour. or very soon. about to take a ground tour. imagine they're talking with people who lost everything or much of what they have. so we'll bring it to you. another image of the day likely the image so many will be talking about and maybe leading up to the election. one of the chief surrogates for governor romney side by side with president obama as they should be in crisis. like this. and we'll have much more on that. president obama will return to the campaign trail tomorrow after wrapping up the tour of the storm damage today in new jersey. tomorrow the president turns to
romney very, very close. you saw that poll that said 6% here in ohio yesterday. at an event in columbus, i saw david axelrod, the president's chief strategist. he thinks that the 2 to 3% race. they think that the auto industry ads that have been so controversial for mitt romney has backfired, that auto workers here know their business, they know that that ad is not true, and they think that in these closing days of the campaign, alex, it's helped the president. you're going to bet you'll hear about the auto industry in mentor. >> chris, this is certainly one element of the ground game. the president getting face-to-face with his potential voters that will be pulling out the vote for him. but in terms of the sense of momentum there, do you get a feel for the ground game, in which direction it is going? do you agree that the president has that slight lead as according to our poll? >> it does feel when you go out and about and talk to people i i was at both campaign offices. don't talk to any of the campaign workers that ask them to say we're in trouble. both side believe in these closing
polls and other pundits that have spoken of a shift in ohio going in favor of mitt romney, momentum is not reflected in the new cnn poll. it is where it was a couple weeks ago. president obama hangs on to ohio and many believe he will hang on and be re-elected to a second term. this is not by a lack of trying by both candidates to win over last-minute votes and they are doing it to spend an incredible amount of money. $177 million buying television time, much of that money spent right here in northern ohio. we should point out in the cleveland market in 2008, total campaign ads, television time, $36 million. in 2010, it was up to $44 million spent. so far, we are at $88 million in cleveland alone. some say it's closer to $97 million and we've still got a way to go. 400% increase over two2008. the cost of a commercial in the 6:00 news is up over 400% in this market. i'll leave you with one other fascinating fanth. if you took all the political commercials that ran in the cleveland market since the beginning of october and ran them back-to-back you'd sit down and watch them for four a
heat. a cnn poll finds mitt romney holding a slight lead over president obama, 48-47%. while a new gallop poll shows a majority of americans think president obama will win reelection. >> hundreds of voters waited in the dark and the cold tonight to help decide the presidential race and weigh in on three big issues in maryland. early voting resumes in maryland after sandy. lines wrapped around buildings this afternoon. some people waited three hours to vote. early voting in maryland will be extended until friday and polling places will stay open until 9:00 p.m. >> coming up tonight, a traffic nightmare up in new york as they struggle to get back to a normal day after the hurricane. >> one man wanted for three attacks in our area. >> heightened police presence this halloween. we are live as super heroes and goblins are on the streets of georgetown. >>> investigators are looking for 25-year-old lawrence stuart, ii. he is suspected of throwing homemade pipe bombs into three different houses in staff ford county and in fredericksburg, yesterday. his intended targets were his exgirlfrien
they have the math, romney's campaign the myth. polls out today have the president up in two of the states the president needs to put together his electoral puzzle -- wisconsin and ohio. and it's not as if all campaigning has been discontinued. >> we've got to get through the next six days. >> reporter: vice president biden in florida and former president clinton in iowa have been making the president's case for him. >> obama's economic plan is better. his budget plan is better. >> reporter: and diane, starting tomorrow morning, president obama will be campaigning full-time, full steam ahead, going to wisconsin, colorado, nevada, three cities in ohio, and diane, that's just thursday and friday. >> all right, thank you, jake. >>> and what about governor romney? what does he plan to do as the race enters the final stretch? abc's jonathan karl tells us about that. >> reporter: mitt romney was back on the campaign trail today in florida, but with a twist. gone was any criticism of the president, replaced with talk of unity. >> look, we can't go on the road we are on. we can't change course in
for the president, a new college poll shows mitt romney behind just four points. what jumps out at you there, mike? >> well, two things. we see mitt romney continuing to close the gap. but we see the president ahead again and again. they're in the margin of error. the president is always ahead. but very little room to grow. republicans are saying that they don't believe these polls. willie, you're not old enough, but some people will remember the old accuracy and media bumper sticker, i don't believe the post, and i think republicans should get one that says i don't believe the poll. because they spend a lot of their time on conference calls talking to reporters, telling them that these polls don't reflect the reality that they're seeing. for instance, in ohio, neil newhouse, the romney pollster, will say if we win independents, we win. so shethese polls are just clos enough that either side could be right. >> mark halperin, when you look at these polls, the president again has leads in all of these swing states. margin of error leads in some places. what do you see here? >> i'm going to take a ri
're talking about a 75% likelihood that he's reelected as president. the gallop polls have shown romney had a leg up on the competition. >> what do you make of that? >> you always want to say money speaks louder than the so-called popularity polls. that's why they play the games and we'll know next tuesday night. >> are the guys who essentially wager on this or invest in this pretty reliable in general? >> you know what, these guys are a great indicator. there are a number of things going on as a barometer of truth. they may have taken a position early on romney as a huge underdog and try to bet it back with barack obama. normally you're going to see prices approaching 40 to 50 implies barack obama has a leg up on the competition. >> when a pun did it says it's a toss up, this race, that's not really correct. >> some of the indicators say one thing the odds are saying something substantially different. i'm curious to see what happens when the numbers settle into place. most of these spots will close prices mid-day on tuesday and that should be a real good indication what we'll see later. >>
for romney. in ohio, polls reliablely show romney two to five points behind the president. political observers spent a fair amount of time why barack obama is outperforming his national numbers in ohio, among white men. the ohio economy is outperforming the national economy. ohio has a lower unemployment rate than the nation at large, it's seen a faster rate of improvement. a big reason for that is, of course, the auto rescue initiated under the bush administration and executed under the barack obama team. an estimated 160,000 of them wouldn't have jobs if the government wouldn't have stepped in with loans. the reason that it comprised one-half of joe biden's two-line campaign slogan for election and why romney tried to race away from the position at the time he held at the time of the crisis, to let the auto industry go through a free fall bankruptcy. now, i supported the auto rescue at the time. i think it's been well handled by the obama administration. there's something more bizarre that after the first term, the president ended the war in iraq, passed landmark reform and a healt
by the nonpartisan field poll shows obama leading mitt romney. the 15 point gap is considered a big lead. back in september obama had a 24 point lead. experts say romney has managed to improve his standings among a lot of california voters. this last weekend before election day we are expecting a big push from political cam pands. bay area ballot counters have noticed something different this election season. >>> around our district there is probably about at least eight or nine spot corners like this. >> corners where schoolteachers are waging a last minute battle for voters to support proposition 3. hikes they say would stop more education cuts. they are targeting undecided voters. those who would make up their mind in the polling booth. >>> boy if you haven't mailed them by now you are getting really risky about that ballot. >> steve weir has talked to civics groups, about which propositions to support. it shows on voters ballots. >> if you look at our tally equipment you can see where people change their mind. not on candidates, on measures. >> all that eleventh hour head scratching is put
to the polls, and also independents that have been identified as votes for romney and me. >> i know you have a race going on as well how is your race shaping up at this point? >> it is very good. we feel like we will win by a couple of pointos election day. senator nelson said one thing to the state of florida and done another thing in washington d.c.. and the people in the state of florida want somebody to stand up for them and that's what i will do. >> it is going to be engaging day on election day and into the night. thank you for joining. and you keep close watch as we are, too. and thank you and all of the best to you. >> thank you for having me. >> we'll go back to ohio where the campaign is making a final pitch. his campaign spokeswomen is there. >> hi, great to be here. >> nice to have you. i want to talk to you about the ground game. there is buzz about the president's comment in springfield, ohio say thag voting is the best revenge against governor romney. in the closing days, some are asking what happened to hope and change and why talk of revenge? >> i being the context here is i
at where the president and governor romney stand in those polls. >>> all week long we've had a news crew crisscrossing the state of virginia taking the polls of voters in the key battle grounds. the latest poll out just today shows romney with a slight lead there. he's got 50% support compared to president obama's 48%. tonight andrea mccarren wraps up our battle ground virginia coverage closer to home in loudoun county. >> reporter: loudoun is the wealthiest county in the nation in terms of its household income. and political scientists say the candidate who wins a critical vote here and in similar battle grounds wins the election. and that is the so-called panera mom. >> really? oh, my gosh. i'm surprised that we're the ones who would be deciding. >> reporter: the panera mom is educated, has children and is worried about the economy. and you can find her across northern virginia. >> i think a lot of women are looking for humanitarian issues and abortion rights and things like that. but i personally am looking for more business issues in this economy. >> reporter: they're women like virg
way? and it's really impressive. the -- only 37% of republicans agree with romney in this poll. that's the 37% you see of republicans who think state and local should carry the whole burden. richard, the romney position as happily described by him during those republican primaries, he just can't speak a word of that right now. >> the natural disaster they're looking at are those numbers. and that's why he's doing these flip-flops right now. when you are in an election that is separated by one or two points in pretty much all the critical states and your opponent is getting 78% approval, 78% approval, for his behavior on a national stage just a few days before an election, that's a political disaster. never mind the natural one that everyone else is suffering. >> many republicans concerned about this chris christie embrace of president obama, which makes perfect sense from a governing standpoint. >> sure. >> rush limbaugh thinks he's got it all figured out. let's listen to rush on this. >> is it possible obama called christie and said you want some money? you'd better let me come. so
that governor romney will take virginia. up two points on average in the polls that i'm following closely. three points in some. why are you so confident in virginia? what are the signs there that you are looking at? >> first of all, i'm looking at the polls in which he is behind like the washington post poll and governor romney is ahead among independents, strong among republicans and losing the state? i don't think so. look at ratio of republicans to democrats and find out they have a higher number of democrats to republicans than they had in 2008. i think virginia is returning to its original course its historic role of being a republican state. i'm a little worried about the snow in far southwestern, virginia. you do down in the appalachia coal country region and you got a lot of democrats who are going to be voting for romney because of coal. there is a lot of snow down there. i think it will probably be cleared by tuesday but again when you have a lot of snow and an unseasonably early snow you got a little bit of a problem. romney is doing well, everywhere. he is is really hitting hard def
close. slight romney lea now with the rasmussen poll. people could get turned off and not want to vote for somebody, if they are bombarded with negative ads. do you think romney made the right call with the timing of suspending the campaigning? >> greg: i guess so. makes sense. more about the media using the storm as a way to pollster obama. bolstering obama through like a full charm offensive. first, he will be there with the shres rolled up. then the tide will be gone. then the jacket by the third day. the fema offensive in boxers doing a briefing. i think a lot of this coverage is frightening. to the kids at home, don't be scared. monsters in the sky only come down to eat you if you talk back to your parents. >> eric: you make a good point, bob, turn-out. clearly across the board, you hear people saying a high turn-out would benefit president obama. >> bob: yeah. >> eric: a storm will put a damper on turnout. >> bob: probably not seven days from tomorrow. but damper on turn-out for people voting early. >> kimberly: maryland. >> bob: they're turned out already. >> dana: people who do
for the white house with "fox news poll"s showing it is too close to call. president obama and positive romney now tied at 46% after the president dropped a percentage point in the last few weeks. with this race so tight, it could all come down to turnout. when it comes to enthusiasm though, governor romney seems to have the edge, 69% of his supporters saying it is extremely important that he win. only 59% of the president's supporters say they feel that way. let's dissect these numbers now a little more closely with bob cusack, the managing editor for "the hill." in a tight election, bob, that enthusiasm number could be crucial. >> yeah, that's right, jon. i mean the independents and enthusiasm is on mitt romney's side. while president obama has a clear lead among hispanics. mitt romney made the decision his path to victory is florida, virginia and the midwest. some in the southwest. states like new mexico, probably nevada, obama is going to win. so that is where the money is going. it is going to ohio. we have new money in pennsylvania. that is likely to stay in obama's column. but this is w
presidential nominee mitt romney. according to the gallup poll, that up tick gives president obama and romney 48% among registered voters. romney now has 5% -- 51% of the lead. voters have been showing up in groves early to cast their vote. now some political informants worry that hurricane sandy will keep folks away from polls. 15% of registered voters nationwide have already cast their billion lots. >>> that massive storm back east blew the presidential election. >> i'm worried about the impact on our first r esponders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy. >> reporter: president obama cancelled an appearance in florida as he oversees that storm. this is the first time in 40 years that that newspaper has endorsed a republican presidential candidate. for his part, romney today asked voters to consider those in sandy's path. >> a lot of people are enduring very difficult times, and our hearts and our prayers go to them. >> reporter: romney replaced his online fund raising efforts with links to the american red cross to help victims of the storm. he's had to cancel campaign events but
. but the nine swing states still matter most. mitt romney went to virginia, a swing state where the polls show the race tied, and made his closing argument. >> if the president were to be reelected, you're going to see high levels of unemployment continue, and stalled wage growth. if any wage growth at all, just like we've seefr over the last four years. >> reporter: his new ad is positive. >> mitt romney understands business, knows how to create jobs and get our economy moving. >> reporter: but the former governor's path to a win looks difficult. in today's nbc news marist poll, romney's down by 6% in ohio, closer in new hampshire and wisconsin. that's where air force one went today, green bay. president obama back on the trail after suspending campaigning for hurricane sandy. he made his closing argument. >> we know what change looks like. and what the governor's offering sure ain't change. giving more power back to the biggest banks isn't change, leaving millions without health insurance isn't change. >> reporter: his new ad features colin powell. >> the president saved the auto industry. a
of independents like mitt romney much more. the washington post-abc poll, 47-10 for romney liking him more rather than less. for obama it was 17-26 liking him less rather than more. so the debates did not serve the president well, and he continues down this pth. it's kind of inexplicable. gerri: i want to play some sound from all right who i think some of the problem. voters passed. >> college graduates should not have to live out their 20's and their child to bed rooms staring out at fading obama posters and wondering when they can move out and get going with life. gerri: doesn't that crystallize the problem for young voters? >> sure when you have 15 percent unemployment in you hve 50 percent of them who cannot find jobs once they graduate. staying on the counter. the problem is, though, you still have the recent poll, a harvard poll has obama leading men romney by 90 percentage points in that age demographic and 18-29. these are your classic case obama's zombies. barack obama, is campaigning in his actual policies are going to make it a lot harder for young people to find jobs and pay up this e
